MIDLAND, Va. – Two property owners in Annapolis have chosen Smith-Midland Corporation’s award-winning product, Beach Prisms, to protect their valuable shorelines from ongoing erosion.
Corky Graham and Silvester Fabula who own property adjacent to Thomas Point Park and Thomas Point Lighthouse were plagued by shoreline erosion accelerated by a significant fetch from the south. After visiting the Smith-Midland information booth at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Graham and Fabula contracted with Smith-Midland to install 14 Beach Prisms on their property. Beach Prisms either slow the rate of erosion, stop erosion or reverse erosion by replenishing sand in front of and behind the Prisms. The estimated value of the project is $20,000 and should take three months to complete upon receipt of the permit.
